Threads of Life speakers

Threads of Life speakers are parents, spouses and friends. They have been trained to deliver an unforgettable presentation about the pain of losing a loved one to a workplace fatality or occupational disease, or on the impact of living with a life-altering injury. They are united in their conviction that sharing their personal story will prevent further injuries in the workplace. Since the program began in 2005, Speakers Bureau volunteers have told their stories to thousands of people.

Lisa speaking at podiumSpeakers’ stories tackle a range of hazards and sectors, including:

  • electrical
  • transportation
  • process/lock-out
  • health / asbestos
  • working at heights
  • equipment visibility
  • confined space
  • material handling
  • maintenance
  • and more.

Our speakers will come to your site to bring home the reality and repercussions of workplace tragedies to your employees or attendees. Their testimonies personalize the injury statistics and are compelling, riveting and never to be forgotten. They are not safety experts, but their stories reinforce the “why” behind safety programs, policies and procedures.
